This event is AT CAPACITY! Please contact our Events Manager Katie Kelley at [email protected] with any questions.

The southeast European nation of Kosovo has maintained a close relationship with the United States since its independence in 2008. With rising GDP and tensions in the region, what are the obstacles and opportunities for Kosovo’s international relations?

Join Global Minnesota and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs to hear from the Ambassador of Kosovo to the United States, Ilir Dugolli. Ambassador Dugolli will explore Kosovo’s journey towards independence, its prospects for international engagement, and future opportunities for the U.S.-Kosovo relationship.
